Sorry, Jack, you've got an apostrophe error ("its"), a spelling mistake
("grammer"), and a split infinitive ("to thoroughly convince"). Ouch!
NOW, can we dispense with the grammar police thing and get back to musical

Let me start with a clarinet question. Does anyone find a noticeable
difference in the material that needle springs are made from? On various
clarinets, I have seen stainless steel wire springs (some as light and flimsy
as those on a flute), blue steel springs, and even gold-plated springs. What's
your opinion about longevity and response?
